It’s just like 1979 all over again! People looking forward to “out with the old”!
With Contractors currently in this week demolishing the shops at Clydeview Shopping Centre on Glasgow Road, there may be a strange feeling of Déjà vu for many people witnessing the work.
Yes, only 38 years later, the shopping centre is being demolished with the demolition started on Thursday 19th July 2018. It’s day 2 today, Friday 20th July and already good progress is being made ripping down the eastern side of Asda’s shop units.
However, it’s the look from Glasgow Road that I think is changing most notably. Clydeview shopping centre is such a huge part of Low Blantyre, such a noted feature of Glasgow Road and already to see “chunks of it missing” looks strange and unfamiliar. A new view is being created.
